Hot Knives’ Booze Cruise: Week Three

Last week, Hot Knives gave  Zio the recipe for their pumpkin beer muffins—the second of their top-five booze-based recipes—and now it’s time for the third installment: gin holes.

“Named for their shape as well as what it feels like when you eat too many, booze holes fall somewhere in between liqueur truffles and donut holes,” explains Hot Knives. “We first learned to love eating booze when we made a vegan adaptation to the Southern classic, bourbon balls. The first bite tastes like granny’s baking cupboard, but as soon as you breathe out, the unmistakable sting of bourbon whistles on your throat. This recipe, at its core, is just cookie crumbs, roasted nuts and powdered sugar all made wet and sticky by a mixture of booze and syrup. This allows you to play baker and bartender at the same time so you can stumble (literally, you will fall) upon combinations limited only by the span of your wet bar, and your spice rack. Gin is our favorite.”

Hot Knives’ Booze Cruise: Week Two

Last week, Hot Knives gave Zio the recipe for their beer-onion soup sandwich—the first of their top-five booze-based recipes—and now it’s time for the second installment: pumpkin beer muffins.

“We have zero reservations about drinking beer for breakfast,” says Hot Knives. “Why should we? Taken before noon it’s more like medicine than anything. Still, if you’re not as liberal with your a.m. libations as we are, there is a way to consume without feeling like a scumbag: just replace the milk or water in your favorite muffin or pancake recipe with beer and you’ll be eating your alcohol! Yeasty, wheaty and a little effervescent, beer can actually make great baked goods even better. There’s also something undeniably sick and satisfying about making a beer smoothie at sunrise and pouring it into a batter. Now, the only question you should be asking is ‘which beer?’ Listen up, because this may be the only time we’ll ever utter these two words in the same breath: Pumpkin. Beer. We usually mutter curses under our breath when we pass piles of this October trick in the shopping aisles. But bright orange and warmed with baking spices, we can’t begrudge a pumpkin beer muffin.”

Hot Knives’ Booze Cruise: Week One

Evan George and Alex Brown are Hot Knives, the Los Angeles-based cooking duo that shares recipes and beer reviews on their ever-popular blog.

On September 6, Mark Batty Publisher will release the Hot Knives vegetarian cookbook Salad Daze, which covers a wide array of veggie recipes—from basic soup stock and cock sauce to psychedelic rice and Portobello poutine—as well as kitchen tips and tricks. Far from your typical cookbook, Salad Daze also features beer and song pairings with every recipe—such as Green Flash Le Freak and Talking Heads “Psycho Killer”—plus ample cuss words and drug references.

Over the next few weeks, Hot Knives will share their top-five booze-based recipes with The World’s Best Ever. The first recipe in this series is a beer-onion soup sandwich that Zio swears is the best grilled cheese ever.

“Of the five trophies we’ve taken at the Grilled Cheese Invitational over the years, our favorite winner is the only one with booze in it—no surprise there,” explains Hot Knives. “We take a beer-infused Belgian onion soup and turn it into a sandwich. The Trappist beer onions mimic a deeply beefy soup, while the crisp cheese-toast and oozy cheese emulate the gooey crouton on top. There’s one way to eat this sammich: we call it the ‘crunch-slurp’ method. And it’s probably as close as you will ever come to sipping a beer as a sandwich.”
